FPS Mission in Action

Christian, a 41-year-old lieutenant with the Philadelphia Fire Department, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in June of 2022.  The timing of Christian’s diagnosis coincided with the arrival of a new baby, and his wife, currently in nursing school, found their lives suddenly halted as they confronted this difficult period. 

Recognizing the overwhelming challenges faced by Christian and his family amid his esophageal cancer diagnosis, the oncology team believed they deserved a break from the cancer-related stressors.

Christian shared, “Our lives have come to a complete halt as we figure out this challenging time in our lives. This trip would allow us to regroup as a family and enjoy life as we once remembered it to be.”

Christian was gifted a Travel Respite to Woodloch Resort with his wife and their children. The family could not be more thankful for the chance to spend precious time together, uninterrupted.

Reflecting on their Respite Experience, Christian’s wife expressed, “Just two months after welcoming our third child, my husband was diagnosed with cancer, and our world took a turn for the worse. We immediately went into fight mode. FPS took charge of planning everything for us, and we are grateful. Thanks to FPS, we were able to fully unwind. It provided a welcome distraction from the challenges we were facing, bringing us a sense of peace.”

Your support of our Cornhole for Cancer initiative helps us provide even more much-needed respite to families like Christian’s to take a break from cancer.
